Test Drive: 1963 Volvo 122S Estate!

Hey, this is my friend Agent 0311's Volvo station wagon. Restored from a derelict field car over the last three years, off and on. A really fun car to drive, and should last a lifetime, unlike today's shit cars. These are rugged, honest cars with lots of charm and a great roar from the un-silenced twin SU carbs. High quality Bosch electrics and ZF steering box components are part of the reason these cars were so tough; most of the front end parts were still in perfect condition and were not replaced. This early Amazon still runs drum brakes all around, and charging is handled by generator. No upgrades were done to the car. The tires were sourced to match the original spare, still in the back. Hope you enjoyed looking at and listening to this great old car! See the story at volvo122s.blogspot.com, or check out coldwarmotors.blogspot.com if you really have to kill some time at work.

Volvo Amazon
The Volvo Amazon is a mid-size car manufactured by Volvo Cars from 1956 to 1970 and introduced in the USA as the 122S at the New York International Auto Show in April 1959. The Amazon shared both the wheelbase from its predecessor, the PV, as well as its tall posture and high H-point seating — while offering three model configurations: 2-door sedan, 4-door sedan and wagon. In 1959 Volvo provided front seat belts as standard equipment on all the cars, including the export models, becoming the world's first manufacturer to take this step — later becoming the first car featuring three-point seat belts. When introduced, the car was called the Amason (with an 's'), which derives from the fierce female warriors of Greek mythology, the Amazons. Kreidler, German manufacturer of motorcycles had already registered the name, and the two companies agreed Volvo could only use the name domestically (i.e., within Sweden), modifying the spelling to Amazon. Subsequently, Volvo began its tri-digit nomenclature and the line became known as the 120 Series. The Amazon was originally manufactured at Volvo's Lundby plant in Gothenburg and subsequently at the company's Torslandaverken, which began operating in 1964. By the end of production, 234,653 four-door models, 359,917 two-door models and 73,220 station wagons had been produced, 60% of them for export — for a total of 667,791 vehicles.





1967 Volvo 122S for Sale (Drive By and Test Drive)
Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1967-volvo-122/ to see this fun sporty 1967 Volvo 122S for sale from Sunset Classics in Minneapolis Minnesota. The previous owner was a real racing fanatic. He learned to build engines and adjust a cars suspension and engine for maximum handling. This car spent 18 years in Oregon with the previous owner, and although it was never raced on a track, it was built for speed and handling. The current owner is also a loving car enthusiast. The engine, suspension and paint were all nice when the current owner bought the car in 2011, but even so he continued to make improvements on the car. The stainless steel Exhaust is one of the more notable additions the car received since it found a new home here in Minnesota. This '67 Volvo is the sixth car I've listed for the current seller. So don't let the short ownership make you think this car is not loved and appreciated like crazy. The seller is aiming toward owning 100 cars during his lifetime, and since he doesn't own more than one or two at a time it's time this Volvo moved on to a new, lucky owner. Even though the car must move on, the seller mentioned this Volvo is tied for first in the "fun-to-drive" category! For the past two decades, this car has been blessed with very caring owners. As a result this car runs, handles and responds as if it is giving thanks for all the love and attention it has received. The front and rear weight distribution is nearly even, the car is light relative to horsepower, and the suspension has been lowered by about two inches and fitted with new tires and shocks. So this 1967 Volvo 122S is about as fun to drive as any sports car out there for sale today. Take a look at the full specs at the link above as well as two detailed photo galleries and more video. Give me a call to get your hands on this fun sports car! John Snell 612-805-2428 Thanks for watching - enjoy the drive by and test drive video and leave a nice big thumbs up and a Like on this Volvo 122S. http://youtu.be/DH_z2qKUlBk

Will it Run? Episode 18: 1959 Chevy Biscayne! Part 1 of 3
Hi! Welcome back for another episode of our show about salvaging junk and getting it to run just for the hell of it. This time it's a 1959 Biscayne 4 door sedan. It is in pretty rough shape after sitting around outside since 1971 or so. Pretty much everything is ruined, but I still think it would be cool to see it moving around under its own steam again. Join us as we try to make this old Chev go and tidy it up just enough to look presentable while preserving the "farmyard" character of the car. Please subscribe to the Cold War Motors channel if you like this sort of thing! Thanks! Coming soon: Shirts / Dealership decals!





1953 Packard Saved From the Crusher!
Hi! This time we're going to give this old Packard Clipper a home so it doesn't get melted down and made into 7 or 8 Yarii. This old girl has seen way better days, but I wanted one for the CWMC used-car lot to class the place up a bit. Thanks for joining us as we take a little look around this straight-8-powered beauty. It's equipped with the Ultramatic transmission, Packard's own automatic. No power steering in this one, though! This car was originally a light grey with a black top and grey interior. At some point it seems like it was repaired after an accident on the left front corner and repainted this green with a white top. I'm not sure what to do with this Packard, but I just wanted it anyway. Maybe we'll try sometime to get it going again? Let us know what you think. Thanks for watching this stuff; I enjoy sharing these junkyard gems with you. Please subscribe to the coldwarmotors channel if you like this kind of thing! Cheers from me and Stella.

Cold Start the 1971 Citroen DS 21 Safari!
Hi! Cold War Motors just bought this great old Citroen DS. It's a bit tatty and will need a restoration (as soon as I'm finished my other one!), but still runs and drives nicely. These old Cits are a bit grumpy in the cold, and this one hasn't been on the road for a while now, so the battery was pretty tired. I hooked up some cables to a better battery to see if we could get her running for a last little drive before it gets put into storage. I just love these cars, and I wanted a break (wagon) to go with my sedan. This one is a standard shift with power steering and brakes. Looks like Stella wants to go for a ride, too!

Real Drivers: Volvo 122 Amazon
See more at http://hittingredline.com/ . This was an film that I had meant to do in the fall of 2011, but ran out of time for and pushed back to spring. Jonathan Bigelow's 1966 Volvo Amazon has an interesting story that is even more fascinating to hear in full; between its construction and now, it has crossed a number of borders, first from Sweden to Norway, and then from Norway to the United States - and all in one family. For those of you who are particular, the irritating leaf blower cuts out at around 1:17.
